A prototype of an unmanned mini-tank armed with a 30mm cannon has been discovered in Israel.
Twitter user Caesar posted a photo of a mysterious combat vehicle being pulled into the back of a trailer on a public road. It is believed that the armed tank discovered was none other than the BLR Mk2 unmanned ground vehicle with an unmanned turret armed with a 12.7mm heavy machine gun and a 30mm automatic cannon.
The new unmanned ground vehicle has a unique design. The remote combat vehicle was built in the background of the BLR robotic vehicle by BL – Advanced Ground Support Systems.

The BLR offers extreme ground mobility, which, together with “wire drive” technology, allows mission control the ability to control vehicles in a loose control circuit.
The 6×6 drive configuration, using a hydrostatic hub motor allows for unprecedented obstacle handling, from 1,500 mm step climb to 1,000 mm open raceway. Separate hydraulic air suspension arms allow for 610 mm of suspension travel and the ability to change drive height and drive stiffness “on the fly” on the handlebars.
